expect them to the united states to nato for their aid. that being said, all of them want to see their government disarm with these gangs that are roaming about with basically pure impunity. some of these gangs are remnants of the revolutionary forces that were established during the fighting that took place that has been robust to lay down their weapons for a variety of reasons. some are more extremists and they emerge from these evolution nary forces. this brings to light the sinister -- but outside of the authority of the government itself. the realization here very much that this is not the path they want the nation to go on, the government must prove itself to the people by bringing these individuals to justice, by taking these weapons off the street but, again, wolf, not a lot of space at this point that the government is going to be able to accomplish that. >> arwa damon on the scene for for in benghazi. please be careful over there. ben wedeman is in cairo right now. they are getting ready for friday morning prayers. ben, set the scene for us. what's going on right now? >
